Art and information
BY STEVEN WARBURTON
Staff Visitors stopping at South Glengarry’s tourism information booth in South Lancaster this summer won’t just get to learn about everything the area has to offer, they’ll also get to feast their eyes on beautiful artwork created by two dozen artists.
The booth, located at the Rob McIntosh property just south of the 401, celebrated its grand opening on Monday morning with several dignitaries and artists in attendance.
“The high level of local creativity and talent will be on display all summer inside the local art showcase,” promises Shauna Baggs, South Glengarry’s Economic Development and Tourism Coordinator.
“We hope visitors will stop by, take a look around, get a feel for South Glengarry through the artwork and want to see what else our community has to offer.”
She says that artists entered more than 60 pieces of art for consideration. More than 40 are on display and some have already sold. Over the summer, the booth will be staffed by students Callum Robertson and Mikayla Elliott.
